There’s somethin’ wrong with the world today
I don’t know what it is
Something’s wrong with our eyes
We’re seein’ things in a different way
And God knows it ain’t his
It sure ain’t no surprise
excerpt from Aerosmith Living on the edge
Aerosmith was definitely on to something here when he sang this song that the world is not acting according to God’s plan. The world is seeing things differently. The world sees death, violence corruption, not enoughest (not a word), weakness, sickness and poverty just to name a few as the normal order of things. And if it weren’t so then we would end up with a lot of evil people living forever like Hitler for instance.
Death was never a part of the original DNA of man. It only entered through man’s disobedience. The death gene became part of man after his creation. So how do we beat this death gene? The easiest thing would be to be good. But man’s nature is not to be good. We know that we are cleansed by the blood of the lamb but then we go back sinning again. There must be another part of the puzzle.
That part of the puzzle is the anointing of God. Being in the anointing changes our nature. If our nature is not changed we would continue with our nasty nature. It’s time for us to gravitate to holiness. Being in the anointing increases our appetite for spiritual things and increases the God type of life (Zoe).
